“Medicare.gov/Nursing Home Compare,” the official United States government site for Medicare ratings of over 15, 000 skilled nursing facilities across the country, has continually reported Cedar Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center's highest ratings. Only a select number of facilities achieve high ratings from the Centers for Medicare-Medicaid Services (CMS), the government agency overseeing the rating system.

The rating is derived from several factors:

• Health inspections, for the 3 most recent years

• Staffing – hours of care provided per resident

• Quality of Care measures

The staff of Cedar Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is very proud of their ongoing accomplishments. See for yourself by scheduling a tour at our facility.

Physiatry Offerings at Cedar Manor

Physiatrists are trained in the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Cedar Manor's physiatrist, Dr. Putcha, deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disability caused by chronic and acute diseases. Physiatrists have been successful in treating conditions including:

Acute & chronic pain
Knee, back, and shoulder problems
Musculoskeletal disorders
Sports injuries
Spinal cord injury
Lung conditions
Effects of cancer treatment

Dr. Putcha looks at the “whole” person, not just the diagnosis, whether he is conducting an initial assessment or monitoring the patient’s response to treatment; striving for improved outcomes in terms of comfort and health through the use of the latest modalities available. This additional clinical service will be helpful in restoring our residents to their highest level of function, independence, and their quick return to the community.

Cedar Manor is proud to announce that Advantage Surgical & Wound Care is now part of our team. Advantage provides superior, professional surgical wound care within the nursing home. Residents can now avoid frequent, lengthy and often costly transportation to wound clinic appointments. In addition, their day is not disrupted. They will not miss meals, recreational activities or scheduled therapy sessions. Another highlight is that communication of care between doctor and nursing staff is direct and personal rather than by note alone. 
VitalStim Therapy

Cedar Manor's Rehabilitation Department has contracted with "Language Fundamentals" to provide speech, language and swallowing evaluations to its residents requiring services. Included in their services is the ability to implement VitalStim Therapy which is an FDA approved method to promote swallowing through the application of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) to the swallowing muscles in conjunction with conventional swallowing exercises. The goal of this treatment modality is to strengthen and reeducate the muscular system and improve motor control of the patient's swallowing mechanism. The modality can be utilized to treat patients with dysphagia due to a variety of etiologies including:

Parkinson's Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
Head Trauma
Head & Neck Cancers (in absence of active neoplasm)

Candidates for treatment will be assessed for tolerance, assessing such factors as frequency, duration, and progress of this specialized modality. Patients placed on program will be done in collaboration with the patient's attending physician. For more information on this service please contact Tammy Hayes, Director of Rehabilitation at (914) 762-1600 ext. 326 or by e-mail at thayes@cedarmanornursing.com
